bridal shower

Check out this cake from the bridal shower I attended over the weekend.  And yes, it tasted as good as it looked.  Seriously.  Delicious.

Red velvet cake with raspberry swirl, vanilla frosting with a fondant over that.  The cake was so moist and the frosting was the perfect sweetness, and I love fondant.  I wish I could have a bridal shower just so I could get this cake.  Yummm...
The shower was at a Chinese restaurant, so I knew there would be tons of to-go boxes, so obviously I asked them to bring me piece of cake to go. 

Georgetown cupcakes

There's a new cupcake place in town, but they might not be new to you. This place started in DC and it's called Georgetown Cupcakes. Apparently there is also a TV show about it and its' owners, called DC Cupcakes. The outside is clearly still under construction, but it's in a cool part of the city and it's a nice space.
These cupcakes were not my favorite. I tried the vanilla/vanilla, as usual. The frosting almost tasted like it was from a can, and the cake part was just okay. I also had the urge for the key lime, which was better than the vanilla/vanilla, but I didn't love it. Jill got the chocoloate peanut butter swirl, which looked great and which I will try if I ever go back.

This was a great episode with tons of guest stars, like Fred Armisen, Amy Poehler, Jon Hamm and this guy...

New Girl quote of the week -- 5/1

CeeCee's 'Bubbe' to Schmidt:  "If you hurt her, I will let myself die and then I will haunt you."

I loved all the references to Winston's earring, but this was my favorite, from Jess:  "Take it easy, black George Michael."
